Three Poems Up at The Blue Nib

Rattlesnake sign
My poems “Scarecrow Dances,” “Tuning the Beast,” and “Synapses and Other Conjunctions” have been published at The Blue Nib. The latter two were written during the   August 2015 Tupelo Press 30/30 Challenge.

  1. visited The Blue Nib and read your poetry…very enjoyable…liked all three but ❀ "scarecrows" and "rattlesnakes" and the photo…first saw a sign similar to this in 1983 when Don and I were moving to Arizona. πŸ™‚

    • Ha, and thank you! Greetings from Bandera, Texas! I am meeting an air conditioning contractor tomorrow morning at our rural property, the Hill Country Hovel, and rather than drive in the dark tomorrow morning and risk hitting deer, I chose to spend the night in Bandera. But I don’t believe I’ll be sampling the night life – I brought my laptop!

        • Well, life is an adventure! As for our Hill Country Hovel (aka Money Pit), it’s been both dream and nightmare. When I was in my early 40s I enjoyed going out every weekend and working my butt off. Now that I’m nearing 60, it’s not nearly as much fun. The manual labor is more taxing, and quite frankly I’d rather spend my time writing.

          As for night life, Bandera, the self-proclaimed “Cowboy Capital of the World” is famous for having a large number of bars per capita, serving the large number of cowboys (many dude ranches in the area) and tourists. I’ve been to several of the bars, but only in daylight. I can’t seem to muster the energy or interest to partake of the scene. πŸ™‚
